Hier zückt Gott schon mal seine Knarre, wenn nicht alles so läuft, wie er sich das ausgedacht hat. Hier kommt das schlechte Gewissen auf vier Pfoten angetappt und wird dafür von einem Pornostarlet überfahren. Hier wird im Himmel geflucht und auf Erden gebetet - und vor allem wir hier kein Blatt vor den Mund genommen. Ein scharfes, respektloses Debüt voller Witz. ?Auslander brilliert auf dem schmalen Grat zwischen Komik und Ernst. Glänzend." Jerusalem Post

The fourth edition of J.A. Cuddon's classic dictionary has been thoroughly revised and updated to maintain it as the most comprehensive and accessible work of its kind currently available, for students, teachers and general readers alike. Expanded to include many new entries, it has been improved throughout, in places rendered more concise, in others amended and extended, with both major and minor additions. The work of the third edition, to cover the schools and various terminologies of literary theory is continued, without compromising coverage afforded to more traditional critical terms and topics. At this untimely death in 1996, Charles Cuddon, as he was known, had completed much of the revisory and updating work involved in preparing the edition. That work and other unfinished plans and outlines have since been overseen and developed by C.E. Preston of Sidney Sussex college, Cambridge, helped, as she acknowledges, by several of her academic colleagues. Among the entries extensively rewritten or newly contributed are: * "CrimeFiction", * "Dramatic Monologue", * "Ellipsis", * "Punctuation", * "Rhyme", * "Verse Novel", and * "Sonnet Cycle". After more than twenty years in print, Cuddon's Dictionary of Literary Terms and Literary Theory remains "a superlative work of reference that will be read for pleasure", just as it was acclaimed to be when first published in 1976. There is now no better memorial to its author's extraordinary polymathy and literary scholarship.

A Glossary of John Dryden's Critical Terms was first published in 1969. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. Although John Dryden is, as Samuel Johnson described him, the father of modern criticism, his critical writings are difficult for twentieth-century readers to understand and appreciate. Part of the problem lies in the fact that many of the critical terms which Dryden used have changed or expanded in meaning since his time. By providing a series of glosses of seventeenth-century critical terms, this volume clarifies and illuminates Dryden's work for modern readers and scholars. Professor Jensen has catalogued every important word that Dryden used in discussing critical matters, whether about art, literature, or music. In addition to covering all of Dryden's works, the glossary encompasses works of other important seventeenth century critics, among them, John Milton, Ben Johnson, and Thomas Rymer. The structure of the glossary is simple: under each word there is a general definition and, if needed, an essay on the word's origin, history, and general usage. Then the various particular meanings of the word are given, and under each definition are listed the critics, the works, the editions, and the page numbers where the word is used with that particular meaning. Selected quotations abound, substantiating the text. The book will be useful for students and teachers in seventeenth and eighteenth-century literature courses and for scholars doing advanced research. Students will gain an understanding of the development of critical though by reading the essays in the Glossary. Modern scholars of Restoration literature will find new ideas here as well as confirmation of some older conjectures about Dryden.

Ein Tag, der alles zerstörte. Eine Mutter, die ihr Kind verlor. Und ihr Wunsch nach Vergebung, der nie verging – eine bewegende Geschichte um Liebe, Reue und Hoffnung. Sie verlor ihre Tochter an dem Tag, an dem die Bombe fiel. Ama hatte sich mit Yuko verabredet, um mit ihr über den Mann zu sprechen, den Yuko so liebte und Ama gleichermaßen verabscheute. Doch dazu kam es nie. Ama war zu spät – und ihre Tochter und ihr Enkel tot. Ama ließ Nagasaki hinter sich, wanderte nach Amerika aus, aber der Schmerz blieb. Nie konnte sie sich verzeihen, gab sich selbst die Schuld am Tod, ja sogar am Schicksal ihrer Tochter. Sie zog sich immer mehr zurück und lebte in ihrer eigenen Welt voll Trauer und Schmerz – bis ein junger Mann an ihre Tür klopft. Er sagt, er sei Hideo, ihr totgeglaubter Enkel. Zuerst will sie ihm nicht glauben, doch dann öffnet sie ihr Herz und lässt die Hoffnung herein ...

Now in its third edition, the Glossary of Contemporary Literary Theory has been revised and expanded to include many of the new terms in this volatile and fast-changing field. A substantial number of new entries come from the increasingly influential area of post-colonialism (e.g. neo-Tarzanism, mediascape, and nativism), many are new or previously unremarked terms in the field as a whole (e.g. cyborg, queer theory, script, and habitus), and many entries have been revised as our understanding of the theoretical terminology has evolved to need redefinition.
